She attended Central High School and Oklahoma State University where she was an Alpha Chi. She met Lee Raney while in college and they married on March 15, 1953. Their marriage was a shining example to all for 68 years. Grace was a 2nd grade teacher in Wichita, KS and in Waco, Texas. She also served as a dental hygienist, a volunteer in the church library, taught ESL to Japanese students and supported Lee's dream in helping to create the Tulsa Air and Space Museum and Planetarium. Grace was proud to have completed the 8-year study of the Bible through Bible Study Fellowship. Above all, she was a loyal, trusted and loving companion to Lee, a wonderful Mother to her children and "Grandma Grace" to her 3 grandchildren.

She will be fondly remembered and greatly missed by her husband Lee, her daughter Elizabeth (Libbie) Raney Couper and husband Nicholas, grandchildren Catherine Couper Espinosa and husband Hector Alberto Espinosa Navarro, Caroline Nicole Couper and John Lee Couper.
